|Problem # p049|
The rod of mass m in the figure to the left is in the process of sliding
along the wall and floor. Neglect friction.
The polar mass moment of inertia of the slender rod of length L and
mass m with respect to its center of mass is given by the equation :
The purpose of this problem is to ultimately derive the differential equation governing the motion of the rod. You will have to address only the first five questions, see the special comment at the end of question 5.
